I am not sure how powerful this new console will be but my guess it will be as powerful as PC and might as well be more expensive than Xbox One!

Whatever, are we really in need for a fourth console? Many tried to compete with Sony, Nintendo and MS and failed. MS themselves had invested billions before being able to maintain a profit from the Xbox consoles.

Can Valve handle this and can we as gamers handle this as well!

Could lead to an interesting redefinition of console. And what this will certainly make the PC Master Race battle lines more annoying.

It could end up just like Ouya did.

Whatever Valve is going to push out is nothing other than a pre-fab PC, just like your grandma's ****y Dell computer. Calling it a console is flat-out wrong.

Well, at least your sig is right

I feel like whatever they release will be too expensive for mass adoption like a normal console would be.

I could be wrong.

Still kind of exciting to see what they announce.

So you're saying that Valve is going to release hardware that none of its games can be played on? Because nothing other than a PC running Windows, Mac OS or Linux can do so.
